The air-liquid intercooler, also known as the charge air cooler, is a heat exchanger that transfers the charge charge to an intermediate fluid (usually water) that ultimately dissipates heat into the air. These systems use heat sinks elsewhere, usually due to space constraints to eliminate unwanted heat, similar to automotive radiator cooling systems. Air-to-liquid intercoolers are typically heavier than air-to-air coolers due to the extra component composition. System (water circulation pump, radiator, fluid and piping). The Toyota Celica GT-Four had this system from 1988 to 1989 and from 1994 to 1999. It also participated in the Carlos Sainz Rally Championship from 1990 to 1993. The 1989-1993 Subaru Legacy was equipped with a 2.0-liter DOHC flat-4 engine. Air-water coolers were installed on top GT and RS models sold in Japan, Europe and Australia.
A major advantage of the air-to-liquid setting is the overall length of the overall pipe and intercooler, which provides faster response (lower turbo lag), providing peaks faster than most pre-intercooler settings Supercharged. Some facilities have a cistern that can hold ice and produce a lower intake temperature than ambient air, which is a big advantage (of course, ice needs to be constantly replaced).
Ford had adopted the technology when they decided to use forced induction (via Supercharger) on their Mustang Cobra and Ford Lightning truck platforms. It uses a water/glycol mixture intercooler inside the intake manifold, just under the supercharger, and has a long heat exchanger front mounted, all powered by a Bosch pump made for Ford. Ford still uses this technology today with their Shelby GT500. The 2005-2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged also utilizes a similar setup.
Air liquid intercoolers are the most common form of intercooler found on marine engines to date, as an unlimited supply of cooling water is available, and most engines are located in enclosed compartments, providing good cooling air for the air. Traffic - It can be difficult to get to the air force. The marine intercooler takes the form of a tubular heat exchanger in which air is circulated around a pipe in the unit casing through a series of pipes and cooling water. The water source for the intercooler depends on the precise cooling system installed on the engine. Most marine engines circulate fresh water inside them through a heat exchanger cooled by sea water. In such a system, the intercooler will be connected to the seawater circuit and placed in front of the engine's own heat exchanger to ensure supply of cold water.
